The Tony Award winning, Broadway smash hit Peter and the Starcatcher is coming to Adelaide.

Before Neverland there was an Island. Before Captain Hook, a pirate. Before Wendy, her mother Molly. Before Peter, a nameless boy.

Originally developed by Disney Theatrical Group, written by Rick Elice (Jersey Boys), this all-new production is reimagined by acclaimed Dead Puppet Society. 

Experience the joy as we jump aboard this epic voyage and discover the untold story of Neverland. 

Commissioned and originally produced by Disney Theatrical Group. Originally produced on Broadway by Nancy Nagel Gibbs, Greg Schaffert, Eva Price, Tom Smedes, and Disney Theatrical Productions. Licensed exclusively by Music Theatre International (Australasia). Quotations: original Broadway production.
